Although they somehow came up with the price at £390 which is incorrect.

I read the first 3 reviews.

The 1st was about them being charged a lot for mobile data when on holiday, which was their own fault.

The 2nd was about the EU region lock, which isn't an issue and is disabled after you've made 10 minutes of calls within the EU on the phone.

The 3rd was about rooting the phone (irrelevant to a normal user) and the region lock (which as above isn't an issue now).

After that I gave up.
Wish amazon uk would sell it at this price

Does it matter? It's all part of Amazon EU, you can use your normal amazon account, and it's still the same great service.
Amazon converted the currency and it came to £388...

When you put in your card details it has an option to charge in £ or in another currency, just select euros.

Yeah as would be here tomorrow with prime plus a uk spec phone.
Uk sites such as clove are now saying that your eu compatible ph will only work with eu sims, no matter where you go. Shouldn't matter to those who don't worry about roaming costs, but ths does put me off buying a note 3
N9005 £369 at simply electronics free delivery .
Good price.

I think the consensus is avoid simply electronics though lol.
Wait for the note 4 or get a Find 7 too late to get note 3

plus Tax and no UK warranty and you have to pay postage to send it back to Hong Kong if something goes wrong. Yeah thats a lot of savings.

China based website, pretending to be a UK based one with a hotline that doesn't work. You will have to pay import costs and VAT!
Just look at the reviews on trustpilot!!
Do not buy from websites which do not show their UK address and contact details (requirement by law in uk) just because they are cheaper. You will regret it!
Worth getting a travelex euro currency card if you live near a branch.The card is free and you get a very competitive exchange rate.

Just be careful as some banks charge around £20 for foreign currency usage, HALIFAX is one of them on my ONE card

oh okay....thank you
Wow, a thread full of very useful information with no trolling. A new high for HUKD.
I bought this brand new from eBay 1 week after its release for £400.00. Just saying.
After watching the new Lumia at the MS Blog conference yesterday I'm going to hold of for Nokia's new flagship device, plus it's a change from Android. I hope I'm making the right choice lol

Because you made that up.
Got mine from simply electronics, no import charges. I paid about 360, the phone was posted from amsterdam and is just as it was described. I only had one issue issue with them, they said delivery would be a week but it was more like 2.5 weeks which is really anoying when your waiting on a new phone.
You can get this from o2 refresh for £360 and possibly 240 if cash back works. Refurb but not a damp thing wrong with it. Love mine. Much better than my old note 2 - glad I upgraded.

Just my 2 cents

Genuine question: why is is much better than the Note 2? I have one and whilst I normally want the latest and best, I don't see what this offers that my Note 2 doesn't, apart from a 1080p screen.
Google chrome does a fairly good job of translating German to English, just ordered doing this. Paying with Norwich and Peterborough card which charges no foreign transaction fees if you pay in euros.

Finally living in the back of beyond gives us some posatives

OnePlus One!

Better in what terms exactly? The Note 3 is not a regular phone it's capable of much more and does not compete directly with any other type of phone as this is one of the only phones to have an active stylus with dedicated Wacom digitizer, enabling near accurate input with the stylus. The form factor for this phone is also quite unique in that it's light and reasonably thin and packs a big Full HD screen in a phone that's nearly as tall as recent phones such as M8!

I personally don't have a note 3 and use the S4, my sis has the N3 and even I'm jealous it's a great phone all round at this price I'm tempted.
No deal breaker, but I guess this will have a Euro style charger.

How so? The Note 4 won't be out until September/October? If the Note 3 is the sort of phone you're after, you'll be hard pushed to find one better, other than the Note 4.

he's on about the oneplus one phone 5.5 inch screen, godlike specs for 290 quid, if the devs are to be believed
What do you all reckon to this?

Hacked account possibly, or some very dodgy import maybe?

Did you end up giving it a shot?
I have been watching its price for the last 3 months hoping it might go to the sub £400 mark. Hot deal but I cant use this as I get gadget insurance through my bank and I don't want them using amazon.de as an excuse not to pay out if reqd. The small print says UK spec phone sold by UK seller.
Yes we all know that the UK and EU specs / warranties are the same - but I am too chicken to take the risk with such an expensive phone ( as they do cover water / accidental damage which Samsung won't ).
